The Manchester Marathon is one of the UK's premier running events, famous for its fast, flat and friendly route. For the first time the route goes through the exciting city centre of Manchester.
We pride ourselves on welcoming all to take on our 26.2 mile challenge, from some of the world's greatest elite runners, to those who thought completing a marathon would never be possible. Many regular runners find this the ideal event to get a personal best time, whilst everybody finds the incredible Mancunian support throughout the course unforgettable.
20,000 people of all abilities will be at the 2020 event on Sunday 11 October.
